Shakespeare® embeds copper conductors around the circumference of finest quality fiberglass for maximum strength and freedom from corrosion. Center fittings of stainless steel and acrylic coated fiberglass withstand the most rigorous marine environment. Our antennas bolt directly to the deck or platform, eliminating costly porcelain insulators. Shakespeare® bases are made of galvanized steel and our brass top caps are designed to eliminate corona at high power levels. Whether used onboard ship or on tactical base stations in environmentally harsh locations, our antennas provide naval and commercial radio users with a high performance design built to critical specifications.
